Washington Lobbyist Jack Abramoff, accused of federal fraud charges in a casino fleet purchase deal, is willing to submit to an interview with Florida investigators trying to solve the gangland-style murder of the businessman who sold the boats, Abramoff's attorney said Tuesday.
The lawyer, Neal Sonnett, said after a brief scheduling hearing in federal court that Abramoff had expected to meet with Fort Lauderdale homicide detectives shortly after the February 2001 slaying of Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis.
The interview never happened, Sonnett said, and now Fort Lauderdale detectives are expressing new interest in talking with Abramoff.
A hijacker on a casino ship... hummmmm...
If i was the conspiracy type (what...who...me?) I would say that the casino trip was supplied as payment in advance...
but the terrorist connection is scary... I will look into that...
Let us hope that someone doesn't put the kybosh on the plans for a full scale investigation... one threatening call could do it, so the victory is premature until the rich boy sings...

Shortly after 9/11, Abramoff signed up as a lobbyist for this consortium of banks that operate according to sharia, or Islamic law. According to the National Journal (Aug 31, 2002), the consortium was created after the attacks as President Bush began cracking down on terrorist financing. Abramoff's job was to spread the word about Islamic banking practices and to refute claims that Islamic banks sheltered money used for terrorist networks. And if anyone needed a good PR man, it was the chairman of the General Council for Islamic Banks, a Saudi businessman named Saleh Abdullah Kamel estimated to be worth in the neighborhood of $ 2.6 billion, who was quickly the subject of intense government scrutiny over his possible ties to terrorist activity.
